Our Mission: Education

Parent and community demand for increased focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields in school curriculum means that educators are both inundated with new tools – and often underfunded to take advantage of them. We want to help. NASA missions and research objectives excite, engage, and focus a classroom full of diverse students because these ARE real-world scenarios. Real missions. Real astronauts. Real science, technology, engineering and math.

Our mission is to engage the next generation of scientists and engineers by empowering educators like you. We’ll make it easy to understand, adopt and implement. Big ideas in bite-sized, easy to digest modules.

Lesson Plan Spotlight:


Interactive Feature

NASA’s Space Operations Learning Center (SOLC) interactive provides themed modules featuring videos, quizzes and educational tasks. The materials meet National Science Education Standards (NSES) and provide students an opportunity to engage with NASA operations dependent on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
